Genera Antoinella Jeannel, 1937 (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Trechinae) three new species from Morocco: A. espanyoli n. sp. , A. iblanensis n. sp. y A. fadriquei n. sp.

Three new species of the genus Antoinella Jeannel (Carabidae, Trechinae) are described from the region of Taza in Morocco: A. espanyoli n. sp. (the smallest of all Antoniella), A. iblanensis n. sp. (with the end of aedeagus truncate) and A. fadriquei n. sp. (with the aedeagus rather similar to that of A. iblanensis n. sp. but end not trunacte). A brief summary on the geographical dispersion of the genus is given. The most distinctive taxonomic characteristics concern the male genitalia; the accompanying drawings contribute further to the identification of the new taxa.
